Joseph Bevan Sugar Tongs


Item Description

Joseph Bevan, Baltimore, Maryland

Very rare sugar tongs by Joseph Bevan, Baltimore, 1850s and perhaps earlier.

Pleasant & Sills do not show a J. Bevan, but he is listed in Wood's Baltimore Directory for 1856-57 as a watchmaker.

His marks also show the 10oz 15 mark often used by Baltimore Silversmiths and very few others. A rare maker from this important city. Interesting claw tips and fine condition.
